Military Court Denies Ranariddh's Request - 2005-03-04

The Cambodian military court denies Ranariddh's request to keep opposition lawmaker Cheam Channy out of jail on bail.

Earlier this month the National Assembly President fowarded a request from the opposition lawmakers to the military court asking it to consider setting Cheam Channy free on bail during the investigation.

The chief justice and the chief prosecutor of the military court wrote two separate letters to Ranariddh inform him that Cheam Channy's charges are serious and therefore the military court can not allow him to be free on bail.
